The Oddbins Take

Jonathan Maltus is the established maverick of Bordeaux – the novice Englishman who turned up at Château Teyssier in the 1990s, introduced new techniques, bought up new land and started producing stonking wine, the ‘garagiste’ way. This term refers to those making the bigger, bolder styles of Claret that emerged in that period, embraced by critics like Robert Parker. This Grand Cru is true to that style and is showing fine damson, plum, meaty and earthy flavours that should develop well with a few more years.

Château Teyssier started to produce wine in 1869 and, skipping forward about 150 years, it was bought by Jonathan Maltus in 1994. Having put a completely new team in place, the culture of the property was completely changed and the estate has been given a fantastic new lease of life.
